    This Plugin looks interesting to implement automation of merging process. But process explained doesnt help to implement the same.

    My requirement is to automate merge process from Feature -->Release --> Trunk Using Jenkins job.

    Steps explained in this plugin are not of much help. Could you please elaborate the steps on how to configure this job to Merge the code.

    Also do you have any plugin which works with Crucible review tool?
